    Florida Sen. Marco made up for his poor showing in the New Hampshire presidential debate a week earlier, rating the highest in a CBS News/GfK poll immediately after Saturday's GOP debate in South Carolina. Here's how Republicans and independents who watched the debate responded when asked who won: Marco Rubio: 32 percent Donald Trump: 24 percent John Kasich: 19 percent Ted Cruz: 12 percent Ben Carson: 8 percent Jeb Bush: 5 percent Rubio is the "clear favorite" among respondents identifying themselves as Republicans, while independents are split between Trump, Kasich and Rubio, CBS News reported.

    On Friday, not only did CBS This Morning skip any coverage of the annual March for Life in Washington D.C., the morning show actually attacked one of the event’s keynote speakers, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, for her “anti-abortion” views. In a news brief at the top of the 7:30 a.m. ET hour, co-host Norah O’Donnell touted: “Our Des Moines affiliate, KCCI, reports on accusations Carly Fiorina used preschoolers as props during an anti-abortion speech.” O’Donnell fretted: “The Republican presidential candidate ushered the children to the front of an Iowa campaign appearance. They sat near a picture of an unborn...

    Rick Davis, the campaign manager for 2008 GOP nominee John McCain, said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the loser in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's decision to endorse businessman Donald Trump for the 2016 GOP nomination. "You win every day or you lose every day in a campaign at this stage down to the wire. And it was a big win day for Trump and a big lose day for Cruz," Davis said on "CBS This Morning." There's a "battle for the dwindling Carson vote," he said, which is why both Trump and Cruz are pushing so hard to build...

    Pro-life leaders are used to being accused of hate speech by Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, and campus feminist activists. But they were surprised to hear Dr. Ben Carson seem to agree that they spewed "hateful" and "immature" rhetoric on Sunday. When CBS moderator John Dickerson asked Dr. Carson whether Planned Parenthood was right that pro-life rhetoric had led to Friday's shooting inside a Colorado Springs abortion facility, the doctor readily agreed. There is "no question the hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation," Carson said on "Face the Nation." Pro-life advocates quickly rebuffed the notion that they had pushed 57-year-old Robert Lewis...

Gross was a contractor for USAID (United States Agency for international Development) who was arrested in Havana on Dec. 9, 2009. His "crime" was attempting to provide Cuba's Jewish groups with satellite internet equipment. Gross was held in KGB-and designed dungeons for 5 months where he lost over a hundred pounds. In March 2011 he was finally "tried" (by a judicial system lifted lock-stock-barrel from Stalin's during The Great Terror) and sentenced to a further...

    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

    CBS News is changing its game plan for Saturday's Democratic primary debate in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks. The debate questions prepared earlier this week by CBS News political director John Dickerson and the network's congressional correspondent, Nancy Cordes, were designed to burrow deep into the candidates' views on domestic issues such as the Affordable Care Act and gun legislation. But once the news of the deadly coordinated killing rampage in Paris circulated late Friday afternoon, the moderators and producers started planning a greater emphasis on security in the debate queries.

    We live in a weary age of fable. The latest Hollywood mythology is entitled "Truth." But the film is actually a fictionalized story about how CBS News super-anchor Dan Rather and his "60 Minutes" producer supposedly were railroaded by corporate and right-wing interests into resigning. In reality, an internal investigation by CBS found that Rather and his "60 Minutes" team -- just weeks before the 2004 election -- had failed to properly vet documents of dubious authenticity asserting that a young George W. Bush had shirked his duty as a Texas Air National Guard pilot. The fabulist movie comes on...

    The United States spent a total of $5.9 billion to fund militaries around the world in 2014, according to the government’s 2015 Foreign Assistance report. Of that total, some 75%, or about $4.4 billion, was divided between Israel and Egypt. Clearly, the Middle East, at 64% of the pie, is the theme here, with Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon also found among the top 10 recipients. Closer to home, Colombia led the Americas with a relatively scant $29 million. Still, that’s enough to place it ninth overall on the list.

Asked about this Wednesday, Carson told CBS News, "It's still my belief, yes." The subject came up when Buzzfeed published a 1998 commencement speech delivered by Carson at Andrews University, a college founded by Seventh-day Adventists. "My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said. "Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs' graves.

While Rather briefly admitted that CNBC"didn’t do it perfectly" the liberal journalist quickly blamed the GOP presidential candidates whose "constituency loves attacks on the press. So the moderators open themselves to some criticism." -Rather continued to dismiss the substance of the criticism against CNBC's biased debate and argued that it was just a made up issue by conservatives:

The writing is witty and chocked full of innuendoes and one liners that are so bad they are great! Too bad it was never picked up.

And so, in the year of our Lord 2015, it did transpire that Deadline reports Alcide Bava, a production company founded by Big Bang Theorys Johnny Galecki, is developing a sitcom based on bestselling 2007 book The Year Of Living Biblically.

    CBS' eagerly awaited new show starring Melissa Benoist as the DC Comics character comes weighted with significance. CBS' Supergirl shouldn't have to be a feminist landmark, but it is. In a cultural moment in which we're so far past superhero saturation that a greasy layer of superhero residue seems to be building up on every medium, Marvel still gets gloaty that by tacking the words "and the Wasp" onto an Ant-Man sequel, it had its first Marvel Studios release named after its heroine. On the small screen, Marvel is doing a bit better with Agent Carter getting her own titled listing and with Jessica Jones on...

    CBS has refused to run advertising for Truth, the film starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford that revisits a painful episode in the network's past involving a discredited 2004 news story on former President George W. Bush's military service record. CBS has denounced the movie, which opens Friday, as a disservice to the public and journalists. Redford plays Dan Rather in Truth, with Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes. Together, they were behind a 60 Minutes II story that questioned Bush's Vietnam War-era commitment to service in the Texas Air National Guard. But CBS apologized for the story after documents used...

    The film Truth will be released commercially later this month to retell the Rathergate scandal from the perspective of Mary Mapes. The film is based on Mapess almost laughable 2005 Rathergate memoir. The left routinely seeks to rewrite even yesterdays news; events eleven years ago, when Mapes committed her misconduct, have now attained the status of ancient history. John and I therefore sought to reiterate the basic facts of the Rathergate scandal in the Weekly Standard article Rather shameful. Our article is intended to constitute Rathergate 101. Now comes Atlanta attorney Harry MacDougald the pseudonymous Buckhead to give...

    I did not see the CBS 60 Minutes interview with President Obama; so I set about going to look for it. Before going to CBSs website I stopped by U-Tube to see if there was an encapsulated segment. Fortuitously I discovered this presentation. While it is not the entire interview, it is well worth the watch for greater foxhole-morale value. Not only is the commentary quite funny, it also provides further evidence that there are many people who understand the situation and feel the same way.

    When Dan Rather filed suit against CBS 14 months ago -- claiming, among other things, that his former employer had commissioned a politically biased investigation into his work on a "60 Minutes" segment about President Bush's National Guard service -- the network predicted the quick and favorable dismissal of the case, which it derided as "old news." So far, Mr. Rather has spent more than $2 million of his own money on the suit. And according to documents filed recently in court, he may be getting something for his money. Using tools unavailable to him as a reporter including...

    This story by Bernard Goldberg certainly takes me back to the early days of my blogging career. Shortly after the 2004 Republican convention, Mary Mapes produced a segment for 60 Minutes II that alleged that George W. Bush had manipulated his enlistment in the Texas Air National Guard to avoid serving in combat in Vietnam. The documents used by CBS, Mapes, and Dan Rather turned out to be clumsy hoaxes, which the blogosphere exposed through careful review of their substance and their form (the latter of which I played a small part in refuting, with my expertise in printing and...

    What was supposed to be friendly territory grew heated in a CBS interview with President Obama that aired Sunday night, showing a contentious debate between Obama and a network correspondent. In a wide-ranging, 24-minute interview that covered domestic and foreign policy, it was the Middle East that produced the most fireworks between Obama and '60 Minutes' reporter Steve Kroft. Kroft repeatedly challenged Obama's strategies in Syria and against the Islamic State in the region, accusing the president of 'embarrassing' failures and a lack of leadership. Obama defended the U.S. mission in countries like Syria and Iraq and said better results...
